Pi Beta Phi was founded on April 28, 1867 at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois. Our 12 founders were dedicated to creating a values-based organization in which individual development is a key component of the mission and vision of the organization. Pi Beta Phi was the first national secret college society of women to be modeled after the Greek-letter fraternities of men and paved the way for future women to not only attend college, but find a strong sisterhood. Pi Beta Phi attracts women who possess a desire to be a part of a dynamic organization that will promote growth in all areas of life. A dedication to core values is at the heart of the organization. Pi Beta Phi offers its members the opportunity to be part of an organization where members care for one another, shelter each other and share the bonds of sisterhood.
The mission of Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for women is to promote friendship, develop women of intellect and integrity, cultivate leadership potential and enrich lives through community service.
The vision of Pi Beta Phi Fraternity is committed to being recognized as a premier organization for women by providing lifelong enrichment to its members and contributing to the betterment of society.
